Forest Park United Methodist Church Foundation

In 1983, members of Forest Park United Methodist Church had the remarkable vision to insure the life and vitality of the church's mission and ministry by creating the FPUMC Foundation.

Thank God that those who have gone before us had the insight and the vision to know that money would be needed to keep our building in good repair and more importantly that in changing times, evangelism would have to take on a new focus. The funds earned through wise investments by the Foundation's directors have been used for evangelism, direct mailings of invitations to worship to the "45805" zip code, repair and replacement of heating/cooling system, supplementing the salary of the youth minister, upgrading the sound system and replacement of the roof among other things.

We have Good News--death has been defeated--The Holy Spirit is always with us--that message needs to be proclaimed. Our beautiful, comfortable building is warm and welcoming, and new ministries will continue to be developed so that our purpose to make disciples of Jesus Christ by serving and nurturing with love the spiritual and physical needs of all people in our community will be fulfilled for many generations.
